Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: First Jerry Recording

here's a pre-warlocks breakdown.

May/June 1961 Bob and Jerry A folk duo formed by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia shortly after meeting in the Spring of 1961. They performed at most only a handful of times using this name.

July 1961 Jerry Garcia, Marshall Leicester and Robert Hunter A tape of a performance by this trio circulates. The performance was probably in July 1961 at the Carlos Bookstall in San Carlos. During the Summer of 1961 Garcia performed in a number of informal situations with Leciester, Hunter, David Nelson and others.

Jan 1962 Unknown Bluegrass Band inc. Jerry Garcia A tape of a performance by an unknown band that includes Jerry Garcia circulates. The performance (10 songs) is thought to be from January 1962 at a venue in Burlingame.

May/June 1962 Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers A trio formed by Jerry Garcia, Marshall Leicester and Dick Arnold in May 1962. A tape of a performance by the group exists recorded at the Jewish Community Center in San Carlos on June 11, 1962.

Nov 1962 Jerry Garcia / David Nelson Jerry Garcia and David Nelson performed together informally throughout the early part of the 1960's. A tape of a performance by this duo exists recorded at the College of San Mateo on November 10, 1962.

A tape of a performance by this group, with the personnel listed above, exists recorded at the Tangent in Palo Alto on February 23, 1963. The group also performed at the Monterey Folk Festival in the Summer of 1963 with a line-up of Jerry Garcia, David Nelson, Robert Hunter and Ken Frankel

I have the Boars head recording with Dick & Marshall, although the set list is a bit varied. Where can I get these other recordings, which is stated, are out there ? Are they on this site?

I'm sorry. Was that a silly question? I just found this site yesterday. I am sure there is a lot more to this site than I know at this point. Dial up doesn't help either. The more obscure the recording the more interested I am.
